Your transcript(s) will start to be evaluated once you submit your $200 confirmation deposit to the Office of Admission Processing. It is normal for this evaluation to still be in progress when you attend SOS.
To get a preview for how courses will transfer, please view the Transfer Course Equivalency Tables at auburn.edu/transfercourses. These tables will show how courses taken at other institutions will be evaluated for credit at Auburn. If you do not see the course you are looking for in the tables, this means that the course has not yet been evaluated for potential credit. Once you pay your $200 deposit, your pending courses will be evaluated and then that specific course will be reviewed.
Please save any specific questions regarding your transfer credit evaluation for Academic Advising during SOS. Your advisor will be able to give you some more specific information regarding your transfer credit and any next steps you may need to complete.
Depending upon the courses taken and the familiarity we are with the institution, the evaluation process may take time. You are encouraged to submit your confirmation deposit as soon as you have decided to come to Auburn. This will help ensure the Auburn credit awarded will have time to process and show on your record before the SOS Orientation session.
For more specific information regarding the transfer credit evaluation process, please visit the Office of the Registrar’s website.
To see an initial view of your transfer credit evaluation after you have submitted your confirmation deposit, log into AU Access and navigate to the My Academics tab. Then click the link for your Unofficial Transcript.
Here is an example of what you may see:
In the section Transfer Credit Accepted by Institution, you will see how your credits are currently being transferred. Here are some helpful tips to help you understand your unofficial transcript.
The credit will be listed using Auburn’s course codes and course titles and not what the course was called at your previous institution. You can use the Transfer Course Equivalency Tables at auburn.edu/transfercourses or your knowledge of your specific grade in each course to help determine what you received credit for and what may still be waiting to be evaluated.
Frequently Asked Question: I feel that some of my courses may have been evaluated incorrectly. How do I challenge an evaluation if I believe there may have been a mistake?
Please talk to your academic advisor (at or after the Academic Advising part of SOS) about challenging an Auburn course equivalency. If your advisor agrees the course may need to be re-evaluated, he/she will explain how to initiate the process.
